Haryana announces to set up medical college in every district

Chandigarh:  Keen on producing 2,000 doctors every year to meet the shortage, the Haryana Government has decided to set up a medical college in every district of the state.

This was stated by the Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, while speaking at the ‘Double Helical State Health Award 2017’ presentation ceremony organized here.

He honoured about 50 prominent doctors, health experts and medical specialists for their outstanding contribution in the field of healthcare.

Describing doctors’ profession as stressful, the Chief Minister said a medical officer performed his duty round-the-clock. It is commendable. The state government is continuously working to meet the requirement of doctors and it could only be achieved by setting up new medical colleges.

Mr Khattar said a medical health insurance scheme was also being finalized to ensure that poor people did not face any difficulty in getting treatment in hospitals.

  1. Why the politicians never give a time frame for their promises.. We are hearing this promise of opening up of a new medical college in every district in Haryana for the last three years or more. But what is the situation at ground level ? Can the government name a single new medical college in the state after they came to power few years back ? Kalpana Chawla Medical College, Karnal is not their brain child and by chance it got first MBBS batch in current government tenure.

    The govt and Chief Minister should come up with a concrete plan with detailed phase wise plan that in which districts the medical colleges will come up at what time .
